Ethan Sontarp '24

Addy Hall

Hello! My name is Ethan and I am from Long Island, NY. I am a senior in the school of Geosciences. Throughout my time at Princeton, I have served as a sustainability peer leader through the EcoReps program, been involved with the Geosciences Society, and worked as a student researcher for various environmental science projects. I am an infrequent participant in programming at the Center for Jewish Life (although I would like to go more!) and a member of Tower Club.

In my free time, I enjoy painting, drinking coffee, and planning niche events with my friends. I like to run over Streicker Bridge when the sun is setting, comb through the mineral specimens in Guyot Hall, and if I’m forced to set foot in Firestone Library, studying in the Solarium isn’t all that bad.

If you asked me about a unique skill related to Princeton, I would say it would be sustainable living in college, local recycling protocols, and the University’s sustainable action plan. If you’re wondering why your toilet water is blue, I have an answer for you!

One of my favorite memories of Princeton is from my first year. It was one of my first times getting off campus, when I visited the nearby Princeton Lavender Farm. Although the lavender wasn’t in season, I was able to interact with dozens of baby goats, who like to use humans as their personal jungle gym. This serves as a reminder that although Princeton isn’t a huge town, there are many opportunities to get off campus and experience local attractions, or even travel to nearby cities.

I’m so excited to meet you this year and serve as a resource to make your college experience the best it can be. Please reach out to get a meal with me or come by my room for free snacks. I can’t wait to get to know you!
